Thank you for taking a look at my art. I have FIVE different prints in Terry's "American Portrait" series for sale. Every one of the prints is an ARTIST PROOF, each numbered 9/350 with its own COA! These prints are beautiful and professionally framed and matted. All are in virtually mint condition. There were seven prints in the "American Portrait" series. When I purchased these, there were only 5 of the series available as the other two had been already sold. I really wanted the "complete" collection but could not pass up the opportunity to own the very special A/P prints with such low numbers. The actual print size is 18 1/2" x 32" on all 5 prints.
I am downsizing my art collection as I prepare for retirement in the next couple of years. I will be posting many more prints in the coming weeks and months as time permits. The prints are really magnificent and need to be seen in person to be thoroughly appreciated. Anyone who is familiar with Terry Redlin's artistry and skill will understand that the price I am asking for the print is indeed very fair, especially for an AP print that is numbered so low and beautifully framed and matted.
As for the "American Portrait" series itself, here is what Terry had to say, courtesy of Country-Art.com:
_“This collection of paintings was one of the most technically demanding projects of my career. The coordination of all the paintings, the consistency of each of the continuous elements, the lighting of each individual scene, and the creation of this boy’s life – this family’s life – made the collection of paintings an extremely difficult challenge. The ‘heartfelt firsts’ within ‘An American Portrait’ were built around my own personal experiences, but the setting in which they take place was not based on an actual location, rather my imagination. It is a tribute to America. It is my way of honoring Servicemen and Servicewomen, Veterans, and the families who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.”_
As the American flag waves brightly, we feel our hearts swell as this family prepares for “His First Good-Bye”. Our young man has joined the military. Although filled with a great sense of pride, this day brings mixed emotions for Mom and Dad. His desire to serve his Country is honorable and his commitment true. As the taxi waits, Dad fumbles with his hands in his pockets, unsure of how to tell his son how proud he is and how much he loves him. Theirs has always been a quiet, unspoken bond. Mom, while trying to maintain her composure, is finding it hard to smile for the picture. Tied to the flagpole with his teddy bear near, Buddy watches carefully as his friend says good-bye. As he takes another look around, he remembers growing up here. His first friend, his first day, his first date! So many memories. He glances over at his car. Dad helped him put it up on blocks. It will remain there until he returns.
The sixth of seven prints in “An American Portrait.” As we step into the world Terry Redlin has created for them, we are aware that the paintings are compilations of experiences many of us have shared.
